Algeria: IDEC collaborates with the Ministry of Culture to develop a network of libraries

Last October, the Algerian Ministry of Culture and IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra, with the support of AECID (the Spanish Agency for International Co-operation towards Development) began a Technical Assistance Programme in the Algerian library sector. The aim of the programme is to provide the Algerian Ministry of Culture with a series of methodological tools, experiences and training proposals so as to contribute to the creation and development of a network of local public libraries on a nationwide scale.
